is georgetown university law center professor -- excuse me, law center dean, william trainor. thanks for watching. >> issues like immigration and gun control and what's done with it particularly now in the wake of the terrible murders of children in newtown, connecticut, and privacy and civil liberties and judicial nominations. a couple years ago i had the privilege to introduce senator leahy as he spoke at the new see yum -- newseum, that was a fascinating speech and i know today will be a very important speech on a very important series of topics. after the senator speaks we'll then have question and answer period. let me present to you senator leahy. [applause] >> thank you very, very much. they were fortunate when they had you down there, but my alma mater is fortunate to have you here now. you said about making the choice of georgetown. i was saying to my wife and others, that as i was preparing for this speech i thought, again, just how pleased i made the choice i did on committee assignments. i actually look forward to being back here at georgetown to talk about my agenda. i h
create new laws, how do they know they would be effective? that's one of the things that in covering congress you see that up close, is while they understand that there is a critical need, it's an issue that matters to people, what can they do to would actually make a difference if they put all this political capital into it. so background checks might be a place to begin. high capacity magazines, there might be a place to start with that. well, manufactures will then adjust to work around whatever a new law would b it's complex, it's difficult and one of the most important things to watch is the impact of the president's sort of campaign style tour, when he visits places around the country, urges people to take action, will we hear the phones going off in this place? will people be emailing and writing to their members of congress demanding some sort of action? that's the sort of thing that members of congress pay attention to. and we don't have a sense yet of where people are in terms of not just the polling, but what would they be willing to do to reach out to their own personal m
of the tools they need to help reduce gun violence. >> bill: outgauge in progun circles about a possible law compelling medical people to ask some americans about gun ownership. we'll get to the bottom of that. >> the more i think about it, the more it seems that colin powell's appearance on meet the press was well coordinated with the white house. charges by laura ingraham by powell and others played the race card at the behest of president obama. ms. ingraham will be here. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. evil on the internet. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. whether we know it or not all of us are being influenced by the net. the machines have changed everything in our lives. 245 million americans three quarters of the population have access to the net. worldwide 2.4 billion people have net capability. a third of the world's population. and as you know, if you use the internet, there is a tremendous evil available at your finger tips. pedophilia, drug
inability as a civil society, a nation that takes such great pride in the rule of law, to in some way come to grips with the mace of of guns and violence -- with the place of guns and violence. and before we begin this discussion, i'll just tell you one very personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, i was in denver, colorado, on personal business. and i was driving through the denver suburbs, and i passed into aurora rah, colorado, and saw the sign and thought to myself -- as journalists often do -- oh, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago in which a young man, now appears to be utterly deranged, b went into a movie theater and began shooting down people with an assault weapon. and it went away. the not part of the presidential debate, it was not part of the fabric of our lives, it was not part of the daily journalistic diet. so on that wednesday night i e-mailed the producer of the "meet the press" show that was coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that america needs to be thinking about. and
on the toughest gun laws in the nation, but in congress senate sxwrort leader harry reid pours cold water on an assault weapons ban unless the house acts first. >> let's be realistic. in the senate we're going to do what we think will get through the house, and i don't think going through these eyeragses to say we've done something. >> mother of ben wheeler tells rachel maddow that action on guns should trump politics. >> it's not just republican, democrat -- >> no, no. >> independent. that is the thing that is just blowing my mind that i feel like it's really not about your party. >> it's not. it's not. >> i really feel like it's about our children. >>> coming clean. disgraced pro cyclist lance armstrong confesses to oprah winfrey he used performance enhancing drugs to win the tour de france. >> we were mesmerized and riveted by some of his answers. >> could he face criminal charges? >>> critical vote. chuck schumer says he will back chuck hagel as defense secretary. secretary of state hillary clinton with a long-time ally, liberia's president ellen johnson surleaf. >> it's important to
, there are federal background checks already, so he may expand that law. host: take a look at what the washington post says president obama is expected to say later this morning. background checks for all firearms buyers, as did the assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips. some of those or most of those would have to be done through congress. but perhaps he does some other enhance the database and other things by executive order. caller: defining who is crazy and who is not or maybe someone is distressed because they lost their job, it is going to be very difficult to define mental health. how do they get access to those records. is it a federal? that is the thing. people will say, is my doctor or psychiatrist spying on me? there may be less people going to see a therapist or a psychiatrist because they are afraid they will spy on them and report information back to the federal government. host: let's go back to what you said at the beginning when you talk about the politics of this. this headline -- that was in reference to what harry reid had said. some democrats backing down from an
are the solutions? well, federal action is yielding some progress. the brady law of 1994 has blocked the sale of firearms over 1.6 million felons, fugitives and other individuals. still, more is needed. proactive approaches include renewing the assault weapons ban, closing the gun show loophole and mandating installation of trigger locks and eliminating influxes of cheaply-made weapons. this doesn't infringe on anyone's right to bear arms in this nation, but we have to do things that are common sense. there are guns that have been outlawed in this nation's history. you cannot get a submachine gun or a sawed-off shotgun, why shouldn't assault weapons be added to that group? also, gun buy-back programs in my state have removed hundreds of guns from the streets and i am considering offering legislation to bring these programs to scale on the federal level to help stem the tide of violence. these measures would undoubtedly save lives. enough is enough. it is time to take action. thank you, madam chairwoman. and i yield back the balance of my time. ms. fudge: thank you so much. i thank the gentlem
: is it tough to do? if you have the law in place is it tough for budget folks to implement it? >> very tough. no president wants to give up flexibility. president wants the white house back. they don't want the hands tied by congress if the shoe is on other foot. >> bret: thank you. >> some people brought you obamacare want to control what you hear about it on the news. up next, obamacare was intended to get more people on health insurance. is it already costing you money this or even your job in that's next. fficiently absorbedl continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d with efficient absorption in one daily dose. citracal slow release. ♪ [ indistinct shouting ] [ male announcer ] time and sales data. split-second stats.

laws. some house republicans don't sound thrilled of the exercise of executive power designed only to protect american lives. kansas congressman him huelskamp told msnbc -- >> it is troubling to me the president says if congress doesn't do what i want, i'm going to issue an executive order. people in kansas aren't look for new laws out of washington. >> john: that's a more moderate and sane g.o.p. response. the full crazy came from texas congressman steve stockman who said he will try to defund the white house or file articles of impeachment if that's what it takes to stop the president from passing laws designed only to save american lives. which is not to say that congressman stockman doesn't have supporters. no former reagan attorney ed meese said stockman would have a good case for impeachment of high crimes and misteds against this president. we're only telling you what ed meese thinks about this because smirnoff and irrelevant '80s figures weren't available for comment. what would the president like congress to pass? jay carney was a lot more clear on that. >> there are speci
. >> what! >> per a straight shooter. president obama made a decisive push for the most ambitious gun law overall this country has seen since the late 1960s. >> i will sit at that disk and sign a directive with law enforcement and schools and mental health professionals and the mental health community some of the tools they need to reduce gun violence. as they are important, they are in no way a substitute for the action of congress. it is time for a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. congress should restore a gun on military-style weapons and a 10-round limit for magazines. we have long recognized that with rights come responsibilities. >> the president signed 23 executive orders and called on congress to act, acknowledging there is no law that can prevent every act of violence. the reactions that the president's proposals are rolling in. the speaker john boehner said they will review the republicans and warned good intentions do not necessarily make good laws. the senator said president obama is abusing his power with the executive orders and the senate will hold
that included family members of the newtown, connecticut victims, as well as gun safety advocates, law enforcement and four children who wrote him letters in the wake of the newtown tragedy. he signed 23 separate executive actions on gun violence and then essentially told congress that they have to pick up the ball from here. >> this is our first task as a society, keeping our children safe. in the month since 20 precious children and six brave adults were violently taken from us at sandy hook elementary, more than 900 of our fellow americans have reportedly died at the end of a gun. now, these are a few of the 23 executive actions that i'm announcing today, but as important as these steps are, they are in no way a substitute for action for members of congress. congress should restore a ban on military style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. finally, congress needs to help, rather than hinder, law enforcement to do its job. >> megyn: chris stirewalt is our host of power play on foxnews.com. chris, the president outlined numerous actions he wants taken and that will b
know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg you to try very hard. julia, i will try very hard. >> especially for democrats that remember the beating they took in the 1994 midterms after then president clinton passed gun control. now thousands line up at gun show from ohio,be nevada,be home state of harry reid who today called the president's plan thoughtful but did not commit to acting on it. >> a spokesman putting out tepid statement saying they will review the recommendations from the president. they have a major showdown on his hands. >> bret: suicide bombers blew up the vehicle today in three expleasure in syrian city and 22 people were killed there. they forced them to find makeshift shelter in the caves and ruins. tonight we get a first look at someone who may have been behind last september's deadly assault on a u.s. diplomatic outpost in libya. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge shows us the pictures and a story of an investigation that does not appear to be going anywhere. >> these images with extremist group and long-standing ties to al-qaeda sh
to be some way for the 11 million people who are here without their papers to somehow get right with the law. >> what's next for the debate in congress? as the debt ceiling hovers over head? >>> plus governor jerry brown up close and personal. in an exclusive interview with pbs "newshour's" spencer michels. >> it drives me crazy when people say, you haven't done anything. should we cut the colleges more and pump it into the prisons? >> our spotlight on politics coming up next. >>> good evening. welcome to "this week in northern california." with the presidential inauguration coming up on monday, and major developments this week on gun control and immigration reform, we focus tonight on politics from california to washington, d.c. we'll hear from governor jerry brown later in the program. and to help analyze it all, we're joined in studio by carla marinucci, "san francisco chronic chronicle" senior political reporter." debra saunders, "san francisco chronicle" conservative columnist. scott shafer, host of the "california report" joining us from washington, d.c. scott, let's start with you. yo
murder at sandy hook elementary school, and the president is expected to announce that he wants new laws to require universal background checks for anyone buying a gun in any state. he also wants to renew the assault weapons ban as well as a brand-new ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. >> the president has made clear that we all need to do more. and we all need to examine our consciences and acknowledge that we have not done enough to protect our children. if we had, some of the tragedies that we have seen in this country -- most recently in connecticut -- might not have happened. >> a new a.p. poll indicates a slight majority -- about six in ten americans -- now favor stricter gun laws. many more than that -- 84% -- support background checks for firearms transactions at gun shows. but when it comes to restricting high-capacity clips, some republican lawmakers are now warning a limit on one kind of big magazine just means more smaller magazines in the future. >> a ban on certain kind of magazines means more magazines. anyone who's trained at all, as i know from my time in th
governors are moving fast to change gun laws in their states, will support on the state level help or hurt the white house push here in washington? promises promises. today a deep dive into a president obama pitched as candidate obama and what he did from that first inaugural speech to his announcement speech and, of course, when he accepted that nomination. we are looking back at all of it. it is very interesting and you should take look. good morning from washington. tuesday, january 15, 2013. this is the -- little bit late, "daly run-down." i'm chuck todd. first reads of the morning. with washington once again careening towards a fiscal crisis, this one now about debt and spending. the president used his last news conference of his first term to make it clear he intends to stand firm and refuse to negotiate over the debt limit. >> republicans in congress have would choices. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. they will not collect ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the p
are here without their papers to somehow get right with the law. right now, i mean, if you commit an offense other than immigration, you can, you know, pay a penalty and move on with you life. not so with immigration. right now, for example, we have 2 million migrant farm workers about in the united states. 70% to 80% of them are here without their papers. we have 5,000 permanent residence visas for people without a college diploma. we have husbands and wives that are separated for half a decade. that's not acceptable. we need to reform the system for the economy and for american families. >> and what she told me is this is a real imperative. what's new, it also is now an imperative for republicans. the election results from last november made clear the republican party needs a message for latino, asian-americans and immigrant groups if they have any chance of recapturing the white house. >> scott, this is carla marinucci. what's your thoughts on this? we've seen paul ryan, marco rubio extend a hand to president obama so to speak and suggest they are ready to talk about immigratio
by step, we've made progress towards that goal. over the past two years, i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed into law more than $600 billion in new revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that we'll save in interest payments on the debt, all together that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years -- not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we've made progress. we are moving towards our ultimate goal of getting to a $4 trillion reduction. and there will be more deficit reduction when congress decides what to do about the $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts that have been pushed off until next month. the fact is, though, we can't finish the job of deficit reduction through spending cuts alone. the cuts we've already made to priorities other than medicare, medicaid, social security and defense mean that we spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of
the federal government have a law regarding that but i think each individual state should enact a legislative negligence act that if you don't fulfill that responsibility of having a budget, you do not get paid and you get barred from running for future elective office. with regard to the debt ceiling, here we go again. the republican party, if it goes along with this deal in my opinion ought to change its name to the caveman party and boehner and mcconnell would be the cavemen in chief, because every time we come to this debt ceiling what do the republicans do? they give in. and every amount of money that this country spends is showing it's unsustainable. we've got to reform them and get our budget in order and we've got to get our spending under control. host: lori who is one of the 65 people on facebook who has commented on this this morning says that this makes the seventh debt ceiling plays the obama's term while the democratically-controlled senate hasn't passed a budget. it seems silly -- logical to me at but he'll -- by the way, it gives an advertisement to our plans for inauguration
enforcement of existing gun laws and he'll push for wider sharing of existing gun data bases, may make a wider push to make mental health information available to those performing the background checks. these aren't exactly the things that we heard about that were really upsetting to the gun rights groups. i mean, those sound like things he might have gotten agreement from the other side on. >> one would think so, but then again if you do that, you don't have credit for having done that yourself or cast your opponent as an obstructionist. the president could surprise us tomorrow and do it differently, but right now every sign they're showing he's going to do a my way or the highway kind of a deal. a sweep that president is going to bring forward and call on congress to do x, y, z. maybe a restoration or expansion of the controversial 1994, so-called assault weapons ban. that's not going to pass. it's hard to imagine that that would even pass in the senate where you have harry reid, the senate majority leader and other democrats calling for a slowdown, not a speed-up as relates to gun control.
you inside the law enforcement command center working to keep him safe. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> this is cnn breaking news. >> let's get to the breaking news. a deadly terrorist attack on a gas field in eastern algeria near the libyan border. some of the more than 40 hostages seized have been released but a number of them are still being held, including americans. the state department confirms those americans are affiliated with the oil giant bp. let's bring in elise labott. the latest information you're getting is what? >> well, at first these assailants, these affiliated-al qaeda militants tried to storm a bus, these bp employees headed for an air field in nearby eastern algeria, that was not successful. then they stormed the compound of this living -- the living quarters of this air field and they took about 40 hostages. we understand that about seven americans -- we're not sure. it could be a little bit more, a little less -- are being held as well as britain, japan, norway, and ir labd. >> do we know who these americans are, what they were doi
health reporting and regulation. the nra said only honest law abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy. what is the nra's strategy when it comes to this debate. >> are the president's kids more important than yours. >> reporter: in a hard hitting response the nra has rolled out this ad saying the president is happy to have armed secret service agents protecting his children but for everyone else. >> a hypocrit when it comes to fair share of security. >> reporter: it is the latest muscle flex by the gun group superpack which last year spent more than $16 million to influence political races. that is not a tremendous amount for such efforts. big oil, the pharmacy industry and retired people have more and better funded lobbiests. the gun group uses its money and membership effectively targeting early any lawmaker who threatens the rights. >> the national polls can show an overwhelming majority of people in favor of certain gun control measures but republicans know the turnout is small in their primaries and the nra membe
'll quote them, only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable. what is the nra strategy when it comes to this debate? here is tom foreman with an out front investigation on how the nra gets what it wants. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? >> in a hard-hitting response to calls to are new gun restriction, the nra has rolled out this ad attacking the white house saying the president is happy to have armed secret service agents protecting his children but for everyone else -- >> he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> reporter: it is the latest muscle flex by the gun group superpac which last year spent more than $16 million from its deep war chest to influence political races. that's not a tremendous amount for such efforts. big oil, the pharmacy industry, even retired people have more and better funded lobbyists. the gun group uses its money and membership effectively often targeting early any lawmaker that threatens to go against gun rights. larry sab ba toe is at the university of
is not the most important gun law that congress can pass right now. >>> and plus, while notre dame has been focused on a fake tragedy they have been ignoring a real one. whoa ! looks like you're in a pickle. yeah. can you get me out of it ? just so happens i know a chap... book any flight and hotel together and get access to our free personal concierge service. any need, any question, we're on call 24/7. and one wedding, 2 kids, 43 bottles of olay total effects and many birthdays later, still looks amazing. thanks to the trusted performance of olay. >>> think of some of the wilder things you have heard republicans saying recently. default, socialism, legitimate rape. republicans now have an odd rationale for that behavior, president obama made them do it. that is next. and later tonight, a group of business leaders say they know how to save social security. and here is a hint to their plan. it doesn't involve them paying anymore. at 1:45, the aflac duck was brought in with multiple lacerations to the wing and a fractured beak. surgery was successful, but he will be in a cast until it is ful
? you think that's good? >> that's the law in florida. we have 1020 life. if a crime is committed in possession of a life it's a mandatory 10 years, if you pull out the gun a mandatory 20 years. these criminals are in jail. >>steve: senator rubio will be kwroeupbg -- joining us. >>brian: a terror group is holding at least a dozen people hostage including seven americans. >> here's what the latest is. the algerian army is surrounding a gas facility where hostages are being held. the terrorists say that the attack and the kidnapping is in revenge for french intervention in the country of mali. overnight the algerian government has been in talks with both united states and france, and we understand that the algerian government is now talking to tribal leaders that apparently do have ties to the terrorists. here's how the thing went down. there was a bus carrying american, british, norwegian french and japanese workers. that bus was ambushed by two armed men and two people were killed. they took off to the gas field and the total number of hostages remains unclear but reports say it r
the place on gun control not just washington but also new york. governor cuomo passed the toughest gun laws in the country, it's going to get passed probably on tuesday. here he is talking about it. >> the first point is people who are mentally ill should not have access to guns, which then means you need a database of ownership so you can actually do those screens. mandatory life without parole if you kill a first responder. you need a background check at the dealer, you need a background check when you buy it privately. this is the first system that i am pleaments that and seven bullets in a gun. why? because the high capacity magazines that give you the extrasty to kill a large number of human beings in a very short period of time is nonsensical to a civil society. >> cenk: that's great to hear. sounds like his father again his voice sounds so similar to mario cuomo. he's incredibly pro banker, but outside of that, rights and gun control. >> i love how governor cuomo comes out with the sweeping legislation we've been pushing for, talking about new york, but he's incredibly pro banker. >>
laws. he penned an op ed in the connecticut post today, and he is planning to hit the road to sell his plan with speeches around the country. as the white house tries to engage the public, senate majority leader harry reid will try to engage the senate. in a statement yesterday reid wrote "i am committed to insuring that the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year." the success of the president's proposals, especially a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, rests largely in the hands of the upper chamber. dan gross, the president of the brady campaign, says nothing will happen in either chamber without public pressure. >> there's an extraordinary disconnect between what the american public wants, including gun owners and nra members, and what our elected officials are doing about it. it is going to be up to us, the american public, to close that disconnect. >> republicans seem intent on digging in their heels while president obama is back to the strategy of enlisting the american people to m
support for stronger gun laws. a brand new nbc/"wall street journal" poll show asthma jort of americans, that's 56%, think gun control laws should be tightened in this country. in thames of specific gun proposals being considered, there's even wider support requiring background checks on all gun purchases, eliminating the 40% of gun sales that currently get no checks at all has overwhelming support. a "new york times" poll finds 9 in 10 americans support such a law. including 9 in 10 who say there is a gun in their household. a ban on high capacity magazines is backed by more than 6 in 10 and by a majority of gun owning householtz. 53% say they support a ban on semiautomatic weapons and in if youtown, aurora, tucson, or any of the some 90 gun deaths each day weren't enough, there's perhaps a new poster boy for the gun problem in america. his name is richard schmidt, a white supreme sibs with a felony conviction for manslaughter who managed to acquire an arsenal of 18 assault weapons and other firearms along with more than 40,000 rounds of ammunition. nbc news national investigative corr

me in supporting these important bills to reform our campaign finance laws and assure that corporate rights do not trumps people's rights. thank you. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the chair recognizes the gentleman from virginia, mr. griffith, for five minutes. mr. griffith: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise and submit remarks in honor of virginia state trooper, jay, a devoted public servant, who along with trooper battle, saved a family of three from a house fire in saltville, virginia. when i first learned lerned of the bravery, news reports failed to involve his involvement. on january 2, i spoke of this incident and only mentioned trooper battle. however, both men are deserving of our recognition. . to recap in the early hours of friday, december 28, 2012, trooperer if lapd and battle were in search of a stolen car that had been involved in an earlier police chase. when they noticed off in the distance an orange shoe, they decided to investigate. when they reached the area in question, much to their s
not only are they not backing any new gun control laws, now they're actively attacking the president. the gist of their ad is that if the president's children have secret service protection, shouldn't all of our kids have armed guards in schools. someone should remind them they have secret service protection because the president is the president. anyway, take a look at the ad. >> mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes. but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> yes, an elitist hypocrite who is the president. anyway his plan today will include calls for congressional action on an assault weapons ban, a limitation on the sale of high-capacity magazines, also taking a look at stronger, federal background checks for anyone who wants to buy a firearm. at the moment, senate democratic leadership seems split on whether or not we're going to get any action through congress. majority leader harry reid is skeptical we can get anything past republicans in the house but at the same time, minority whip steny hoyer is more optimistic
for that second suspect is the main concern at this hour and i'm told by a law enforcement source that one of the main focuses that they are looking at right now, law enforcement agencies there on the ground is a wooded area next to the campus of lone star college. they believe that's where this second suspect might have fled into so they are paying a great deal of attention in that wooded area and i believe that creates a whole level of terrain and law enforcement officials on the ground must deal with. so at this hour that is what they appear to be focusing on to find that second suspect. >> and we're getting more information, ed, some of it obviously very consistent with what you're hearing, this coming in from the harris county sheriff's media relations department. let me just update our viewers on what they are saying. as i said, a lot of it consistent with what your reporting shows. they reiterate one suspect is in custody, three people taken into custody. they continue to interview all witnesses to gain as much witnesses at the campus library and five agencies have secured a perimet
